San Francisco Police Seek Help In Fatal Richmond District Hit-and-Run

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) -- San Francisco police were seeking the public's help in finding the person responsible for a fatal pedestrian hit-and-run crash over the weekend.

Officers were dispatched at around 12:20 a.m. Saturday to a vehicle versus pedestrian collision at Geary Blvd. and Park Presidio Blvd. in the city's Richmond District. They found a man suffering from life-threatening injuries after being hit by a car.

The officers began life-saving measures until medics arrived to take over, but the man was declared dead at the scene, police said.

Investigators from the department's Traffic Collision Investigations Unit (TCIU) determined that the man was in the crosswalk when he was hit by a dark-colored compact car, possibly a Mini Cooper convertible, which was traveling northbound along Park Presidio.

The vehicle should have front end damage, police said.

Anyone with information about the crash, or who has any cellphone or surveillance camera video, was urged to contact the police department's TCIU main line at 415-553-1641 or the SFPD 24-hour-tip line at 1-415-575-4444. Anonymous tipsters can also text information to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.
